4610 Pet Lane
This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette L-82 is a well-preserved coupe that mixes vintage style with the right upgrades. So no matter if you like the number-matching V8 or the low mileage or the two-tone paint... you're going to love the value price for the full package.
You recognize this two-tone almost immediately. This was born a code-13 Silver coupe, which was already half of the 25th anniversary two-tone. The addition of the gray lower section completes the look. And this one gets it looking correct, right down to the pinstripe outlining the gray. And as you look closer, there's even a lighter gray pinstripe adding detail to the fender tops and cowl hood. So you get a detailed package without having to pay extra for a 25th anniversary edition. That seems like the right recipe for a great driver. Plus, with the well-fitting T-tops, flush-resting headlight tabs, clean body lines, and confidently closing doors, this cruiser knows how to present a quality style.
The Oyster leather interior has a nice clean look against the silver exterior. Its interior appears highly original, and on a car that has averaged under 1,500 miles annually, everything appears better preserved than many of its contemporaries. And it has nice details like the storage bags for the T-tops and courtesy light that greet you when the door opens. You'll appreciate premium features like power windows, cruise control, and the factory air conditioning was upgraded to modern R134a refrigerant (it likely will need a recharge to blow cold again). There are good driver features, like a tilt steering column, sports steering wheel, and large speedo and tach. And the C3 Corvette's full gauge package is an instant reminder that this is a driver's machine.
The engine is the optional L82 350 cubic-inch V8 with Rochester four-barrel carburetor on top. This higher compression motor was a must-have for the performance fans in 1978 because it offered 19% more horsepower than the standard Corvette V8. This numbers-matching motor has a good factory look with the dual air intake tubes and clean ribbed valve covers. Plus, the belts, wires, and hoses look good from proper maintenance. It's a strong-running car that was made for driving. And this one makes it easy to enjoy any time with four-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, a fully independent suspension, and the numbers-matching three-speed automatic transmission.
Complete with owner's manual, all 1978 Corvettes celebrated the 25th anniversary, and all have the badging to prove it. This one just gives you a little more of the special edition distinction in a package that's more affordable and fun to enjoy. Call today!!!
